anything they dont like to walk on that you could lay in front of the stairs?

it's what I'm thinking, I made a thread on cattle guards yesterday, I'm going to grab a extra tube gate, spike rebar on the side of the steps and set the gate over it, headed to the farm store now, will report back

we started by cutting the wire fence

and removing the rails

the boys came over to investigate

we mounted the new gate

and laid a second gate across the steps to act as a cattle guard

and let the cows out into the yard

they had to check out the pond, goes to show how little rain we have had over the past two months, the pond is about 2 feet low

polo was eyeing the cherry trees

they weren't to impressed with the ducks, everytime they came into the yard, the steer charged them back into the water

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3927/15236814967_662474f95f_c.jpg

we let them hang out in the yard till it got dark, then corralled them back into the barn

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5601/15236822527_a8e7180251_c.jpg

we let the dogs out several times with them, no issues, in fact layla wanted to play with them, until they lowered their heads to charge, then she ran into the house lol

That's so cool. Are you worried about their cowpies in the yard? If we had goats I would be afraid they would leave poop everywhere and the kids would step in it. Different situation, I know.

Now you don't need a lawnmower!

honestly, that was the way I approached it with my wife, she normally mows the lawn, she enjoys it, but she's been putting it off the last couple weeks, so I mentioned last week, ya know, if we let the cows in the yard, they will keep the grass trimmed and the pond cut back, she mentioned again yesterday about mowing the lawn, that's when I said, let's just let the cows in, she agreed!

any cowpies are getting shoveled immediately, the dogs have a "taste" for them
